While ESA’s Planck mission was a resounding success, and its data are still being analysed, we now face a gap before the next space-based CMB mission. It is currently believed that the  next space mission will happen at the earliest in the late twenties-early thirties and it should be planned with the same ambition that determined the design of Planck, that is: give definitive measurements. Till then the European CMB community needs to develop both intermediate measurements on ground  or using balloons and the technology that would permit ultimate sensitivities.

The meeting  “Towards the European Coordination of the CMB programme” in September 8-9 2016 in Florence, will gather both principal investigators  and agency representatives attempting to set the conditions and chart the first steps towards  European coordination  on the ground and sub-orbital missions, review and prepare future collaboration in the detector side, discuss similar efforts in other parts of the world, prepare the proposals to future mission calls of ESA. This meeting is concurrent with other roadmapping efforts happening in other regions of the world; e.g. the Snowmass process in US. The hope is that these worldwide roadmapping efforts at some point will eventually converge to a global research program on ground and in space. 

This workshop follows on from a successful event held last year. Registration is free of charge, and is open now. Participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodation but meals during the meeting are included. We look forward to seeing you in Florence!

The meeting is open to all interested participants but registration is necessaryThere are no registration fees and we will pay for lunches/coffee breaks during the workshop, as well as the dinner on the evening of the 8th of September. Participants have to pay for their own travel and accommodation.
